Property description

Built in 1780, The Priory is a truly unique piece of property built by the local Lord Kenmare for a French aristocrat fleeing the French Revolution. Inundated with old world character, this property of the O'Donoghue Family is a place of welcome, comfort and intense charm.

Set on the door step of Killarney National Park we have two Courtyard Stone Cottages all of various design and layout. The cottages are tucked into a very beautiful and quite walled courtyard setting.

The Loft and Coachhouse cottages were meticulously restored between 2004 and 2006 and will offer you a retreat in style and comfort.

So if you are interested in hiking, biking, golfing, shopping or want to take a cooking class all this can be arranged. Killarney town centre is 1 km or a 10 minute stroll, in the opposite direction over the river you are immediately upon a pedestrian way snaking its way 2km into Killarney's 11,000 acre National Park, Muckross House & Gardens. A 5 minute walk to the INEC. Ask about mid-season specials.

Also ask about airport pick ups or Tim driving you around 'The Ring' and Dingle.

Please contact us by email or telephone and we will answer all your questions that you have.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Bernadette and Tim O’Donoghue met in The Windy City of Chicago a few years back. We acquired the property in 2002. We then returned from Chicago in 2004. Bernadette was a paralegal secretary and is now a stay at home Mom and an excellent baker, I am an electrician by trade but got into construction during my 14 years in Chicago. I restored several old houses and classic vintage apartment buildings during my time there. I coupled this experience with Bernadette’s keen eye and interior design savvy to create some wonderful finishes and unusual touches. We began the colossal rehab project in 2004 to restore the Priory to its former glory ,it was basically completed it in 2007 or is it ever complete I like to ask myself ? We pride ourselves in welcoming you into our place.

Why the Owner Chose Killarney:
I grew up in Killarney, where my parents owned a camping site and I truly loved meeting visitors on a daily basis. We have 4 children and we wanted to raise them here in Ireland, so we said we would give it a shot and here we are.When this property became available we realized how unique it was and what a fantastic opportunity it would be to own The Priory.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We are in a key location,a ten minute walk from town but it feels like we are in the heart of the countryside where you cannot hear a sound by night. You will get a quiet private house to yourself where you can come and go as you please. You can cook when you want and have the full use of the 1.5 acre property on private grounds. You can sit back and relax in the front of the open hearth fire sipping a nice Irish whiskey or reading a good book with the sweet smell of turf burning away. Each cottage has a Jacuzzi you can slip into and soothe the soul after a hectic day. You will get the real feel of Irish living and live like we live ourselves while visiting in your home away from home. We are on site owners who are here to help you in any way you require and assure a wonderful stay. We have invaluable knowledge about the local area from cultural information to hikes, local food joints to off the beaten track drives. We can organize in-house chef, or poetry recital or to a music session. We like to tell our guests ''We are as near or as far as you wish.'
